ATLANTA (AP) -- Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is replacing Dodgers third baseman Matt Kemp on the NL All-Star roster.
Jones had been a candidate to be voted onto the team by fans in baseball's Final Vote campaign. Instead, the 40-year-old Jones is replacing Kemp, who is on the disabled list with a hamstring injury but plans to participate in the All-Star home run derby.
The Braves announced Jones' addition to the NL roster on Tuesday.
Jones will be making his eighth All-Star appearance in his final season. He has announced plans to retire after the season.
Jones is hitting .291 with six homers and 29 RBIs.
